What kind of birth are you planning?
Good question! As of right now, a hospital birth, but see the "sell me on a homebirth" thread for all my wavering...Do you know what you are having; do you want to know?
We don't know yet, and our "official" ultrasound is scheduled really late, not until May. DH claims to have a fear of the unknown, and I'm fine either way, so we'll attempt to find out. DS, who has finally figured out what "pregnant" means in the past few days, keeps saying he's having a baby sister. Hmmm...What kind of care are you getting?
I adore my OBGYN. Even if I go the homebirth route, I'll continue getting parallel care from her. Unfortunately, we're with a big HMO and at a teaching hospital, so babies are mostly delivered by residents, and there's very little chance my particular OB will be the attending physician when I happen to go into labor. It's completely unpredictable who will be at the delivery, what their philosophy toward interventions will be, etc. This was a problem last time around.What are your symptoms?
Almost nothing now. I was WAY sicker this time around during the first trimester, but I've hit that great 2nd trimester burst of energy and am not yet too huge to enjoy it! I know my days are numbered. How are you feeling emotionally?
Pretty good. Again, things were wackier for the first few months than they are now. I'm still having nightmares about my current baby falling into harms way, though. I;d like those to stop!Is this #1 or #5?
#2. I have a son who will be 3 next month. He's pretty comfortable in his role as center of the universe, so we're a little worried about the adjustment. I hope his requesting a baby sister is a good first step!
